    Honduras | 2021–2022 Humanitarian Response Plan 2021
    Also available in:

    The impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and of Hurricanes Eta and Iota have exacerbated the multidimensional crisis in Honduras, weakening communities’ coping capacities. Growing levels of inequality and poverty, violence, displacement and limited access to basic social services are some of the main factors leading to increased food insecurity and malnutrition in the country. Vulnerable populations such as women, children, informal workers, indigenous and Afro‑descendant communities as well as people living with disabilities are among the most affected. With intersecting crises leading to growing needs in the county, livelihood support is urgently needed to quickly restore the production capacity of affected households to access food and generate income.

    In Guatemala, the high cost of the basic food basket hinders households’ ability to access food and leads to increased adoption of negative coping mechanisms, such as selling productive assets or depleting seed reserves to meet basic food needs. As a result, nearly one in six people, mainly vulnerable farmers, are likely to experience acute food insecurity. Supporting their food production is essential to the humanitarian response and is cost-effective. For example, every US dollar invested in agricultural support enables a family to produce staple food worth nearly six times the cost of the seed package received.

    In Guatemala, food security and nutrition needs are at their highest in recorded history. The most food-insecure populations are made up of subsistence farmers whose reserves have been depleted and who face difficulties in planting due to high costs of inputs and fuel. Heavy floods have also caused extensive damage to crops and livestock, exacerbating existing vulnerabilities. Restoring household food production is essential to reduce hunger in Guatemala. However, less than 1 percent of humanitarian funding to food sectors goes to support the agricultural livelihoods of families in need.
